You have got the PATH slightly wrong. You need the PATH to the containing directory, not the actual executable itself.

Your PATH should be set like this:

export PATH=/Library/PostgreSQL/9.5/bin:$PATH

without the extra sql part in it. Also, you must remove the spaces around the equals sign.

Keywords: Postgresql, PATH, macOS, OSX, psql

From the Postgres documentation page:

sudo mkdir -p /etc/paths.d && echo /Applications/Postgres.app/Contents/Versions/latest/bin | sudo tee /etc/paths.d/postgresapp

restart your terminal and you will have it in your path.

If someone used homebrew with Mojave or later:

export PATH=/usr/local/opt/[email protected]/bin:$PATH

change version if you need!
